Basis for Inservice Design: Regular Educator's Responsibilities for Handicapped Children.
Abeson, Alan; Mack, Jean Harris
This booklet contains a policy interpretation, researched and adopted by the National Inservice Network, of requirements for inservice teacher education in compliance with the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 (Public Law 94-142). Four areas are indicated in which regular classroom teachers need training for teaching handicapped children: classroom management, participatory decision making, knowledge of legal procedures, and dealing with human relations and attitudes. Policies on responsibilities of regular classroom educators are based on selected sections in the law that define: (1) the handicapped child; (2) special education and related services; (3) least restrictive environment; (4) supplementary aids and services; and (5) existing federal inservice education policies. Implications for inservice education are noted, and a concluding statement is offered. The development of the policy interpretation is also described. (FG)
